    I thought I had a leaky fuel line at the carb inlet. I replaced the line and clamps and discovered that the plastic elbow barb that the line clamps to is the real problem. It has a tiny seeping leak along one of the plastic mold lines. If this elbow is replaceable and I assume it is, how is it removed?

    Thanks in advance, Rabid Ranger

    Glider,
    Thanks for the info. I suspected that it was pressed in. When I return from a trip to south Texas (auto) I'll tackle pulling the carb and removing the barb. I imagine my local HD dealer might have the metal replacement but I've imagined they would have other parts and was wrong. Can you steer me in a direction where I might get one.

    Thanks Again

    Glider,
    Thanks again. I think I can handle it from here. Well anyway, as soon as I get back to Colorado from Texas.
